Updated Guide to Rural State Services Available

Illinois state officials are releasing an updated guide to state services that targets residents in rural areas.

Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon says the online resources will help rural residents who often don’t know about state programs that answer their needs.

The online guide is a searchable database listing programs by name, organization, category or keyword. Residents, community leaders and elected officials can access information about government programs and how they can help. Programs range from those dealing with agriculture to business development and tourism.
